Green Smoothie

Super Green Zing Smoothie (1 of 1)

Recently I lost my grand-father who was suffering with cancer. He was a man whom I respected and loved. During the time that he was in the hospital in Mauritius  I couldn’t help but feel helpless, I wasn’t there to help him or support my family. I’ve also lost my father and other dear ones to cancer, all this makes me more de-determined to keep studying and sharing healthy recipes to promote and encourage healthy lifestyle. I want for everybody to learn to eat the way we are supposed to eat.

The current healthy eating movement for a lot of people may just be the current fashionable fad for vanity or weight-loss purposes but eating healthy is what we are supposed to do.

Eating produce from the ground, from plants, provides us with plenty of antioxidants that nourishes our body.

I would like to know what you do to care for your body and mind daily, tell us your secrets! I especially love hearing stories of what our elders put their good health and long life down to.

My husband’s great Aunt lived to a ripe old age and was extremely sharp and healthy to the end. Anyone who speaks of her refers to her as a wise woman. She religiously ate a clove of garlic every day of her life and attributed a lot of her good health to this fact.

I’d also like to hear from you if you think you might be in need of a little help, jump to the work with me page, choose one of the treatments, send me an email and we’ll work something out together.

One way I try to look after myself is by adding 1 or 2 green smoothies to my diet every day. This way I can make sure I get some of the vibrant nutrients that the body needs.

Without sufficient intake of antioxidants, our oxygen metabolism can become compromised and we can experience a metabolic problem called “oxidative stress.” Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation and the combination of these metabolic problems are risk factors for the development of cancer.

    This smoothie looks so healthy but also tasty at the same time… We have a lot of cancer in our family, as do so many unfortunately. I’m definitely going to give this a go in my nutri bullet!

    I love kale, in dishes and in smoothies, but for some strange reason it’s REALLY difficult to find here in Greece! 🙁 I would love to try this smoothie. One more reason to look for kale! 🙂

      Hi Nina! So you’re in Greece, what about growing it? I am growing my own and it’s literally no work involved.

    Sorry for your loss, I lost my grandfather to cancer too, it’s a cruel disease. With it running quite strong through my family I’ll certainly give these a try. Thanks for sharing.
